Quick Note from Granger
Not much access on the road, so I have to apologize for not keeping you all up to date. This will only be a quick note from here in Granger, IA. Would you believe that they are offering school with 16 bathrooms AND an Internet Lab.
We are on our 4th day o f this epic journey. Huge torrential rains last night. Fortunately, we stayed in a house last night and only experienced minimal wetness. Today will be another 70 miles but should not be as challenging as yesterday (famous last words.) Began the day with a wonderful burrito at Mama Rafael's (a roadside vendor.)
Saw the ultimate use of technology. A tandem recumbent bike rode past me. It was a father -daughter team. Dad was in front and his 9-year-old daughter was behind him. They were both pumping furiously. He was driving and she was playing "Marbles" on his Blackberry PDA.
Stay dry and we will get more to you soon.
